My husband was watching something on TV where a lady had set herself 50 things to do in the following year - I am going to draw up a list!
Meanwhile the accounts have been completed for the Xmas spending and I have run a report on the "Groceries". This is all food, cleaning products, toiletries, over the counter medicines and day to day stationary for us two and with visitors for about 30 extra "person"days in the year. The total 1st Jan to 31 Dec 2015 is £3562.
My only "resolve" for 2016 is to reduce this to below £3000 for the year. This is £8.52 per day average. I shall be trolling the frugal sites to see how I can achieve this but maintaining our healthy, cooking from scratch, minimum processed food, with home grown veg.
My only restriction is keeping travel to shop to a minimum in time and costs. Plus no shopping around various places as that involves car use for us.
So I think this is going to be about planning, meal stretching, no waste!
Now to start my 50 things to do in 2016.
What would your 50 list for 2016 contain?
